Description

This is a photo of New York CORE demonstrating at a Woolworth's on 125th street in 1960. This was one of the many demonstrations that were part of the larger nation wide protest CORE initiated in support of the student sit-in of the Woolworth's lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina, "the shot heard 'round the world'.

From the Corbis website:
"13 Feb 1960, Manhattan, New York, New York, USA --- -New York, NY: Placard-carrying demonstrators mass in front of a Woolworth store in Harlem here Feb. 13 to protest lunch counter discrimination practiced in Woolworth stores in Greensboro, Charlotte and Durham, NC. The demonstrators, who belong to an organization known as "CORE" (Congress of Racial Equality), are urging Harlem residents not to patronize Wooloworth stores until discrimination ends in the stores in the three Southern cities."
